Herbert “Herb” Alpert (born March 31, 1935) is an American musician most associated with the group variously known as Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass, or TJB. He is also a recording industry executive — he is the “A” of A&M Records (a recording label he and business partner Jerry Moss founded and eventually sold to Polygram). The multi-talented Alpert has also created abstract expressionist paintings and sculpture over two decades, which are on occasion publicly exhibited; and he and his wife are substantial US philanthropists through the operation of the Herb Alpert Foundation.
“Making Love in the Rain” is the third single by Herb Alpert from his Keep Your Eye on Me album. It features vocals from regular Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis collaborators Lisa Keith (lead) and Janet Jackson (back up).
“Making Love in the Rain” was a big success on the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks reaching number seven, and did moderately well on the Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number 35.
The UK 12″ single added the Herb Alpert CD Megamix, billed as the world’s first CD mix created on a Technics SLP 1200. The Megamix contains an intro by Dakeyne and the tracks Rise, Rotation, Red Hot, Keep Your Eye On Me and Diamonds.
